Russian Orthodox Easter in Mallorca

Easter in Russia is the major religious celebration of the year. There, Easter is even more important than Christmas. Faithful and atheists, kids and adults, city people and country folk go to church to attend the Easter Mass. Easter in  Russia is a lot more than a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Unlike Easter in Spain, or Britain for that matter, the Russian Orthodox Church celebrates Easter today, April 27th.

There is a sizeable Russian community here in Mallorca, I am told, and supposedly quite a few of our Russian friends in Mallorca will attend church service today at Santa Caterina de Sena, in Carrer Sant Miquel, in Palma de Mallorca, the official Russian Orthodox church in Mallorca.

The photos were taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The dates: April 23rd, 2008, and April 15th, 2008. The time was 15:02:22, and 13:33:41, respectively.
